It’s almost here, that time of the semester when we can (justifiably) ignore our responsibilities and pretend like we’re in a college movie—that’s right, it’s nearly spring break. Coming out of an extra cold winter season, it’s the perfect time for us hard-working Stags to recharge while enjoying some sun and fun. Whether you want to live large or you’re on a budget, here are some of the best tips to make your spring break 2022 unforgettable.
Before choosing your destination, there are a few ways to ensure you’re getting the cheapest possible flight out of here. In the mad rush, many college students buy the first available tickets and just deal with the new hole burned in their pocket.
With so many search engines to find cheap flights, it’s hard to know which one is really giving you the best price. Even with tools like Expedia, Skyscanner and Hopper, there’s one that stands above the rest.
Enter Google Flights. What makes Google Flights so powerful—aside from the countless filters that help you find the exact flight you want—is that it allows you to book directly with the airline you’d like to fly with. By cutting out the middle man, you’re not only presented with the cheapest prices, but it gives you the opportunity to deal directly with an airline agent as opposed to a third-party agency.
Now that we know we can go on spring break without breaking the bank, we can answer the real question—where to?
Florida: Aside from being everyone’s favorite butt of a joke, it’s sunny, beautiful and a go-to for spring breakers across the country.
If you’ve got your eye on Florida, Miami Beach has a lot to offer. Aside from the Magic City’s nightlife, Miami’s culture and history is almost worth the trip alone.
If Miami isn’t really your style, Jacksonville will most likely have something to offer no matter who you are. Florida’s First Coast is often overlooked, despite its beaches, the slew of amazing restaurants to choose from and even clubbing if that’s more your speed. Plus Daytona Beach is only an hour away by car, so taking a day trip to the world-famous beach is incredibly easy.
Next: Outer Banks, paradise on Earth. If you’ve watched the show, you’re probably itching to live the sun-soaked Pogue life. Located off the coast of North Carolina, the Outer Banks has plenty to offer, from open-sea beaches, state parks and even shipwreck diving sites. Also, given its location, it’s a far better destination choice if driving is more your style.
If you really want to splurge, look no further than Nassau in the Bahamas. In recent years, Nassau has quickly become a top pick for spring breakers of all kinds, whether you’re more of a partying type or just prefer to soak in some rays on its white sandy beaches.
If you’re not sick of the cold yet, a ski trip might be ideal for you. Given the close proximity of many New England ski resorts, packing the car and taking the week off is far less involved than many other spring break choices.
Last, but certainly not least, is a good old staycation. For some of us, forgetting about our assignments for a week and finally getting some well-deserved sleep is the ultimate vacation. And, unlike the other choices for spring break, the only money you might have to spend is on Uber Eats. Either way, enjoy your time off Stags, it’s well-deserved!
